Ontic Signs License Agreement for 300 Products with Honeywell

Ontic, the aerospace industry’s leading performance-driven producer of licensed and/or acquired OEM legacy products and systems, has signed a new license with Honeywell. This latest agreement continues a 28 year licensing relationship between the two companies.

The license is for the new manufacture and repair of 300 products that will transition to Ontic from 8 Honeywell divisions in the United States. The products include electronic assemblies and microcircuits, electro-mechanical assemblies and mechanical assemblies. Ontic will support the products from their Chatsworth, California facility. Aircraft platforms that utilize the products include Boeing F/A-18 A/D Hornet, Boeing B-1B Lancer, and Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk.

Peg Billson, President of BBA Aviation’s Ontic, stated that "Ontic’s focus on the lifetime support of legacy products for OEMs like Honeywell assures that their customers will be supported for as long as they have a need for the products entrusted to us. Ontic refers to product transition as “adoption”, and as the “adoption” company, managing transitions from multiple locations is something we do every day. Legacy electronics and avionics have been a large growth area reflected in recent Ontic licenses and acquisitions, making all of the products in this license an excellent fit. We look forward to the continuation of our mutually successful relationship with Honeywell through the addition of these products to our license portfolio."

Ontic’s global legacy focus is supported from manufacturing and MRO facilities in Chatsworth, California; Houston, Texas; Slough and Cheltenham in the United Kingdom; and another Ontic location opening in Singapore in 2012.
